Candida parapsilosis, a pathogenic yeast, is composed of three newly designated genomic species that are physiologically and morphologically indistinguishable. Nosocomial infections caused by group I C. parapsilosis are often associated with the breakdown of infection control practices and the contamination of medical devices, solutions, and indwelling catheters. Due to the low levels of nucleotide sequence variation that are observed, an investigation of the size polymorphisms in loci… CONTINUE READING
